Foster Lake

Christina, Miriam and I took the "Davidite" (our new-to-us Catalina 22 sailboat) to Foster Lake today to stretch her sails a bit. This was the first time we have sailed her, so it was an exciting trip. The fall weather is moving in, so today was the last opportunity to sail without rain for at least a few weeks - a good excuse to take a vacation day. 

All the reservoirs are draining their water right now, many are closed to boats completely, but one ramp on Foster is still open - though the water is low enough it makes getting down the dock ramp quite interesting. 

The "Davidite" sails great - she was up at "hull speed" a good amount of time, with a fairly gentle wind.
